As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to the students of St. Mary Parish Schools for their fortitude in adapting to mask wearing, social distancing, and other steps designed to keep them healthy. Certainly, these first few months of the school year have presented many challenges as we weathered the pandemic and hurricane season, but our students have shown that they are resilient and able to adapt quickly to change. I also want to thank parents for their patience and understanding as the school system cautiously navigated through new procedures and state reopening phases to safely open schools and keep the community informed along the way.
With the guidance and support of an incredible teaching staff and administrator leadership, our students are moving forward academically and have shown that learning continues no matter the method or classroom location. I have every confidence that they will continue to show academic gains as the year progresses and am grateful for all the extra time and efforts our educators have made to sustain learning both on-campus and virtually.
On behalf of the educational community of St. Mary Parish, I want to extend our wish for a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday. I urge you to continue to uphold mask wearing and social distancing measures during the holiday. We are grateful for the opportunity to educate St. Mary’s next generation, and we look forward to the return of our students on Monday, November 30.
On behalf of the St. Mary Parish Schools community, it is my distinct privilege to welcome you to our district’s webpage. This site serves as a virtual platform for a wide array of information about our district and its twenty-one school sites.
We are very proud of the accomplishments that our district has made in academic growth, and we will continue to strive for further advancements by offering a variety of programs and services in our efforts to reach every student. St. Mary Parish Schools is fortunate to have a remarkably dedicated and highly-qualified staff focused on providing students with an exceptional educational experience that will prepare them for life after high school graduation. Our schools offer an array of extracurricular activities, and we encourage students to get involved beyond the classroom. As educators, we consider it a sacred trust to guide our students in a path of learning that will be challenging, relevant, and purposeful.
Thank you for visiting our website and for entrusting the future of St. Mary Parish to our schools.
--Dr. Teresa Bagwell, Superintendent of St. Mary Parish Schools

There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer.
You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.

For Affordable Care Act:
Compare plans and quality ratings at healthcare.gov, where you can also enroll.
This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners. Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information.
After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596. You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
